The Devonian Elementary School Library: An Experiment in Quarters and Organization

Description: This silent film documents the activities of librarians, educators, and students using the library at Devonian Elementary School in Andrews, Texas. Title cards are included and are shown here parenthetically. The film begins with children entering the school building ("A School Day Begins" and "Let Us Follow These Three Pupils"). Children enter a library and classroom ("The Library Has Open Sides") and an unidentified person makes marks on a library floor plan. Students demonstrate the process of checking out books ("There is a self-charging system of circulation") with close ups of the library checkout card for "The Book of Indians." Children read and check out books and a teacher checks out a film strip and projector ("Fines and Dates Due are Eliminated"). Back in the classroom, the librarian teaches the Dewey Decimal Classification system ("An Index to the decimal classification is used in lieu of a subject catalogue") and a librarian helps children find books on horses and North American Indians. There are close-ups of a checkout card for "Mickey's Magnet" by Franklyn Branley checked out by Lynda Slover as well as checkout cards for "Maple Sugar for Windy" and "Putt-Putt Skipper" ("Titles are given an emphasis in shelving and cataloguing"). A librarian demonstrates how to search the card catalog and students are given assignments. Children in the library return, check out, and read books "("Books are marked with a color code indicating reading difficulty"). At the end of the day children leave the building ("The Last Bell Rings") and the American flag is lowered in front of the building ("A School Day Ends").
